- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date March 18, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that [one resident] was free from physical, verbal, and mental abuse from staff, which resulted in psychosocial harm to the resident.” The investigation involved a resident who “was alert and oriented to person and place, and was usually understood, but had some difficulty communicating, used a wheelchair, and was unable to stand without assistance.”
The Nurse Practitioner’s Monthly Note indicated that the severely, cognitively impaired resident “resided on the secured behavioral unit at the facility due to the resident’s behavioral management needs. The resident had been combative and resistive to care since his admission and was focused on making phone calls. Behaviors observed included flailing around in his wheelchair and yelling when the resident was informed of limits on the phone calls rated the note and included that the resident calmed with redirection.”
A review of the resident’s assessment included that the resident “had delusions and hallucinations, verbal behavior toward others, he was intrusive, disruptive, and interfered with other residents. The resident used a wheelchair, did not walk, requires extensive assistance from one person to transfer, did not have a steady balance, and was able to balance only with staff assistance.”
It was documented that the resident “had sexually inappropriate behaviors and was noted to need a lot of redirection.” The resident was paraplegic after having previously suffered a traumatic brain injury.
A Nursing Note revealed that the resident had thrown himself on the floor and the nurse redirected him into his room where he “came to be lying on his bed after trying to throw himself on the floor.” The Arizona Adult Protective Services “brought in a video from an anonymous sender, and the date and time of the video were unknown. The report included that the video showed [the resident] was on the floor being pulled by both legs by a staff member. The staff was heard on the video saying something similar to, ‘get your F ass off the floor.’”
